✨ Rachel Ruysch – Busy Bouquets✨
In Junior Art these holidays we will be exploring the life and art of the most famous floral still life painters, Rachel Ruysch. We will look at her paintings of tulips and sculpt our own tulips, lillies and hibiscuses from crepe peper.
We will learn about the tulip mania of 1636 where tulips were worth more that 3 peoples yearly income and we will arrange our tulips for observational drawings of them. Using oil pastels we will study the symbolism and the meanings of her choices of flowers, bugs and butterflies and use them to create compositions to collage onto dark canvases.
Our small class size of only 12, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.
All materials and an afternoon tea fruit platter will be provided for each day. Please bring a nut free snack and lunch as well as a water bottle.
